SARATOGA COUNTY — When people reach for a light switch, they assume the lights will turn on. They want the air conditioner working through the summer, heat in winter, and the dishwasher all year long. The dismay is genuine if the cell phone and laptop cannot charge. Personal reliance on the electrical grid is but one piece of the demand for power. Businesses lose money every minute their lights don’t run.

Bailey’s New Ownership Poised to Elevate Landmark to a New Level SARATOGA SPRINGS – This is a great story. It’s a local business story, and a ‘market moving’ trend story. It’s also a hospitality story, with food/beverage and entertainment thrown into the mix. But what makes this a great story is that it is, ultimately, an American story – the type of story America should be more about. It is a story about two hard-working, highly credentialed local gents who…
